Matt Czajkowski has raised more than $21,000, triggering rescue funds for voter-owned candidate Mark Kleinschmidt. Czajkowski filed his 24-hour special report Friday, stating that he has accumulated $23,629.50 in private contributions. Among them are real estate leaders, developers and university professors.
Czajkowski's sum means Kleinschmidt can claim an additional $4,000 in public financing on top of the $9,000 he's earned already by gaining $4,505 from individuals and a political committee, according to his September report.
Competitor Augustus Cho's latest report, filed Friday, shows only one private contribution for $200 from his treasurer. He's loaned himself $547.50 for the campaign. Kevin Wolff's most recent filing shows $10,210 raised including a $10,000 loan to himself.
